In this issue of WMU International News we are featuring the global engagement efforts of the faculty, students and staff of Western Michigan University’s Haworth College of Business. Under the direction of Dean Kay Palan, the college is a campus internationalization leader through a faculty dedicated to ensuring its graduates are real-world ready. The founding of a Global Business Center in spring of 2010 provided a focal point to support ongoing and expanded efforts to internationalize the curriculum, faculty and students through a broad range of opportunities, including research support, international internships, study abroad programs and scholarships, conferences, partnerships and a speaker series. In this issue, we’ve included stories about new and expanded partnerships in China; the college’s Doing Business in China study abroad program led by Dr. Roger Tang, professor of accountancy and Upjohn Chair of Business Administration; Sawan Kapoor, a 2001 graduate of the college, who earned the title of CEO by the age of 30; the differences between Western and Islamic banking principles explained by Dr. Inayat Mangla, an internationally recognized expert on global financial markets; and, much more.
